New Movie Friday

"Hereafter" - Matt Damon, Bryce Dallas Howard, Jay Mohr
Three stories about death and the afterlife, including one involving a psychic (Damon), intersect in a "Crash"-like fashion. Directed by Clint Eastwood, this is getting mediocre reviews but still has my strong interest. Look, I'll see anything that involves Matt Damon. Love the guy. But I'm extremely intrigued to see what Eastwood does with a very un-Eastwood concept.

"Paranormal Activity 2" - Katie Featherston
The sequel to last year's smash hit will involve some sort of freaky ghost action. Confession: ghost movies (and I mean real ghost movies, not "Ghostbusters" or "The Frighteners") FREAK. ME. OUT. I don't see many horror movies because I think they suck. Worthless plots on top of gratuitous junk that just doesn't work for me. But ghost movies? I don't see many of those because they make me want to crawl under the bed like Kevin McAlister and never, ever come out. Needless to say, I'm out.

Another weak release schedule. One of these days it's going to pick up. But today is not that day.
